What to expect
Training takes place 3 days per week and should be supplemented with additional training on your own dependent upon individual running ability. Most workouts will be about 1 hour long. Below is the general schedule, however, runs may vary as training progresses.
Most runners are likely to miss a few days of training throughout the summer, but for best results, runners should strive to attend as often as possible.
MONDAYS – STRENGTH TRAINING FOR RUNNERS
Strength training for runners is cardio intensive body weight circuit training that focuses on strengthening the muscle groups most important to distance runners. Movements will challenge balance, core strength, and muscular endurance. These movements are essential for any runner that wants to make it to the finish line without injury. We will also use this day to practice running form, drills, foam rolling, as well as other skills every runner should know.
WEDNESDAYS – INTERVAL TRAINING
Interval training is an important key to becoming a faster runner. Interval training is characterized by intense efforts followed by recovery time. The benefits of running at your redline are many- including improved VO2 Max and increased lactate threshold.
FRIDAYS – HILL CLIMB OR TEMPO
Tempo Runs are sometimes known as Lactate Threshold (LT) runs. This is because these runs are done at a pace slightly above the pace in which your body is able to completely clear lactic acid. Training at this pace is intended to push that threshold higher so your body is able to run fast longer before fatiguing. Tempo pace can be described as comfortably challenging.
